Sarasota

Marissa: “Hey, wanna go to Hawaii?”

Me: “Uh, yes!”

Me: “Ugh, we can’t rent a car to get around…”

Marissa: “Well, what about Florida? You could come home to Florida with me!”

Me: “Heck yea!!”

And a few hours later, 2 tickets to Sarasota, Florida, were booked from April 25th to May 5th!

I’m not one to do spontaneous things in life, but recently I’ve been taking some risks and stepping out of my comfort zone. One of those things being deciding to go to Florida for 10 days with my good friend and housemate, Marissa. We even recruited another friend, Rachael, to join us! We called ourselves the “Florida Babes”.

I’m pretty certain the trip was one of my all time favourites. We spent about 30 hours tanning and lots of time driving around the town. We ate at amazing restaurants (Chick-fil-a included), hung out with some pretty rad people, and had a lot of laughs. Needless to say, this trip was one of a kind, and I’m so grateful to have been able to take a break from the stresses of life and relax with two of my very dearest friends.

I also wanted to share some snaps from the trip! We had a hashtag where you can see all our pictures —#sunshineplaceofmind — which came from Florida being called the Sunshine State and the slogan for the university we all go to in Vancouver being “A Place of Mind”. But here are a few extra pictures that didn’t make it on to Instagram. Enjoy!!
